Year 5

Class Teacher:
Miss Cooke

Welcome to Year 5!

Welcome back, I hope that you all had a great half term break! We have a busy and exciting few weeks ahead.

PE Sessions will be on Wednesday and Thursday. Please ensure your child’s PE kit is in school at the start of each half term

Spellings will be given out on Fridays and will be tested the following Friday. I will also upload them to this page. The common exception words (below) are the spellings that your child is expected to know by the end of the year.

Reading Please try to read for at least 10 minutes daily with your child. I would like to see your child’s reading record at least once per week, and books can be changed when required.

Please come back to our class page regularly for updates about your child’s learning and if you need to contact me, please press the button on the right and start your message FAO Miss Cooke. Alternatively, contact the office and leave a message. I will get back to you as quickly as I can.
